Free 12 Point Service Inspection includes:
- Check pump pressure – A drop in water pressure may be due to wear in a component or a restriction in a water line that could cause cavitation, damaging the water pump and other pressure washer components. Excessive water pressure would indicate that a component is failing or mis-adjusted, and could cause serious damage to components or injury to the operator.
- Check nozzle, replace if worn – The restrictive hole in the nozzle creates the water pressure intensity. As the hole wears, it reduces the units of cleaning power lowering the performance of your pressure washer.
- Check pump crankcase oil & top off if required – The pump oil lubricates the crankcase components. Low oil levels could cause a premature failure or scratching of the crankcase components, and can cause the oil to overheat and lose its lubrication. Hotsy recommends that you change the pump oil after the first 50 hours of use, and then every 3 months or 300 hours.
- Check hoses for wear or damage – The high-pressure hoses contain a wire braid that can become damaged over time. If the wire breaks, it can cause the hose to leak.
- Check gun and wand for wear or damage – The trigger gun and wand must be checked for common wear and tear that could cause an unsafe working environment for operators.
- Inspect quick couplers – The quick couplers allow hoses to be removed or extended. Nozzles, wands, guns and pressure washer accessories can easily be removed or swapped, so you want to watch for wear and tear.
- Check detergent supply & metering valve – The metering valve and hoses supply the correct detergent dilution ratio for optimum cleaning power. Worn or damaged components could cause air to be pulled through the system, damaging other components, such as the pump. Incorrect metering of the detergent may result in overuse of soap, which can increase the cost of operation.
- Check for coil sooting – Soot can develop on the outside of the heating coil if the fuel or gas pressure changes, or if something else affects the air/fuel mixture of the combustion. Soot is a sign of a combustion problem—the sooner the problem is caught, the less expensive it will be to repair.
- Check unloader adjustment – The unloader valve “sets” the pressure limits when the trigger gun is pulled and released. If adjusted too low, it will reduce the operating pressure of the system. An unloader that is adjusted too high will increase the spike pressure of the system.
- Check thermostat for proper cycling – The thermostat is designed to cycle the burner ON and OFF to maintain the set operating temperature. If the thermostat fails, it may cause severe over heating damage.
- Check engine crankcase oil & top off if required – The crankcase oil lubricates the engine components. Low oil levels could cause the oil to overheat, break down and lose its lubrication.
- Check engine air filter, clean or replace if required – A dirty air filter may reduce the engine performance and the cleaning ability of the pressure washer. Clean and replace the air filter as necessary.
